My Japanese friend, T, said Sakagura is her favorite izakaya in the city, so here we go.
Sakagura has an extensive sake list and the staff there is rather knowledgeable of their sake as well. In addition to the sake, they serve decent food too! According to T, this is pretty close to what she could get in Tokyo.
Sakagura does get a bit pricey especially if you order sake. However, I think it’s a place you should definitely try if you live in the city and you’re not Japanese;)
